This is a stretch sportswear dress from a sportswear maker that I'd love to knock off however I'm having difficulty finding a top or dress pattern to use as a starting point. The part I need is the fitting around the arms. I think I can create the shirring from that point. Would love your help.

Could Simplicity 2443 somehow work as a starting point? You'd have to change the racer back, of course.

What about
Simplicity 2248

It's for a woven, but maybe can be modified?

They don't have to really be totally separate arm bands, they look like they would work as just more normal kind of arm hole facings, just turned inside out, and applied to the outside of the garment, rather than only on the inside of it. Just maybe tuck all that draping into them before you stitch them down on the outside edges? That might even be how they made that part of the dress, but I can't really tell by the picture very good. Or maybe they did that to the front part of the dress, and then actually just self lined the back part of it?
